Maui, Hawaii

I must say, I heart Hawaii...

Curly on the plane; what a trooper for the 5 hour flight!

Oh, why does it have to be so beautiful there?!?
The bride (Andrea, the husband's sis) and groom (Derek); the reason why we were in Hawaii!! Thanks guysDad and Curly at the wedding
The Hula Girl provided a great snorkeling trip

The snorkeling trip was so amazing. We swam with turtles, eels, an octopus, and oodles of cool fish.
Just before we got to Honolua Bay we spotted a HUGE pod of dolphins, including a baby who decided to show off by flipping around in the air as we sailed passed, awesome!!
Unfortunately, we didn't eat any shaved ice or get a Puka Dog so I guess we just have to go back. Oh, Hawaii, I will see you soon!

BTW, all cool pictures provided by Ben and Becca

Coolest thing EVER!

The hubby and I are saving our pennies for the Retail DNA Test for Christmas next year. It was named by TIME magazine as the invention of the year. All you do is spit in it, send it off to the lab and they e-mail you your predisposition for more than 90 traits and conditions ranging from baldness to blindness, all for a mere $400. HOW COOL IS THAT!!

The hubby is one smart papa! They both had a great time. Curly kept saying, "moi", "moi" (more, more)

Thanks dad for giving me a 30 minute break!

Curly has been having her share of crankster episodes lately like a lot of 2yr olds probably do. As she was crying/ complaining in her favorite cry spot under the desk, I thought I'd tape it and show her how silly she is, since she loves to watch videos of herself. I caught just the tail end. You can tell just the thought of watching the video calmed her down and she was trying not to smile in the end. Even though she's doing her best to perfect the cranky routine, she is still a super sweet little girl most of the time and we wouldn't trade her for anything.
